I've been working hard on this room over the past couple of months and wanted to share a few of the updates we've made. I find that master bedrooms are easy to be forgotten about when you're in the process of decorating an entire house - mostly because no one sees it but you, so you put all of your time and energy (and money...) into the areas that you entertain in.
But behind our living room and Hadley's room, we spend the most time in our bedroom, and I was sick of looking at a half finished, mish-mash room full of random decor. So one day, I mapped out my game plan, did some online shopping, and started to bring my vision to life.
Nick and I had already painted the room way back when we first moved in - Benjamin Moore's Cedar Key - and thankfully I still love it. I have a bad relationship with paint colors. Don't ask me how many times I've repainted our entryway. I'm also obsessed with our headboard. It's from Target and such a great deal. What I was really struggling with though was what to put above the headboard.
This room drives me nuts in that it is not symmetrical at all. I have a window on one side of the bed and then a dark corner on the other. We needed something above the bed to bring it all together. If you saw my Insta-story a couple of weeks ago, you saw that I was considering a couple pieces of art, but neither of them just seemed right. I ended up going with a picture ledge because I cannot get enough of our newborn photos and just want to use them ALL over the house (so I am).
I used Keepsake because I am the absolute worst at getting frames for my photos and I love love love that they do it all for you - print your photos, frame 'em and deliver them right to your doorstep. And delivery was epically fast, like two days later, which I love because Amazon Prime has ruined me.
Didn't they turn out amazing? I went with the Bristol frames in the 11x14 and can't get over the quality. And ordering them took a whopping 5 minutes, if that. They even have an iPhone app that you can order from! I used their website (because I have serious storage issues on my phone) and it was just overall an awesome experience.
Moving on to beside the beds. Our nightstands are actually $70 dark brown IKEA Hemnes ones that we (Nick) painted white. We also attached new handles because that really does make a world of difference. Topped with lamps from Target, the sweetest picture that makes me smile every night when I'm getting into bed, a delicious smelling candle, a favorite hand cream, and the occasional fresh flowers.
I was also on the hunt for new sheets. I love me some Target/Homegoods/budget finds, but if there is one thing I insist on splurging on, it is sheets. (With an exception to the Costco flannel sheets, because those things are the best.) But I really love a good, crisp sheet set. We went with the Circle Cut set from Serena & Lily and they are goooood. It's part of their luxury bedding range - yes, please - and it seriously feels like you're climbing into a hotel bed every night. It's the little things, right?
It's hard to be able to see the pattern because it's so very neutral and tiny, but I love that the sheets have a little something to them. I also just realized that they have the same pattern in a crib sheet so I'm thinking Hadley girl needs one, too!
I'm really happy with how the room is coming together! I just have a couple more things to change and then it should be dunzo. I want to switch out our ceiling lighting and the wall to the left needs something on it. I'm thinking one of these big signs. Also contemplating a rug for under the bed. What do you guys think? I think it might be nice to break up the carpet a bit.
Oh, and as a treat to you guys for getting through this monster post, if you want to try out Keepsake framing for yourself, use code KatieElizabeth15 to get 15% off of your order! I highly, highly recommend it - they're awesome!
